Newcastle’s Financial Inclusion Group was established in 2011 and brings together different partners from the public and community and voluntary sectors to:

  • Develop a citywide consensus about how we can best use our collective resources;
  • Reduce the duplication and improve the targeting of resources;
  • Provide partners the opportunity to share information and plan together;
  • Develop joint campaigns;
  • Promote an honest dialogue that helps people to meet their rights and responsibilities;
  • Improve our understanding of financial inclusion and of the difference we are making;
  • Tackle key issues in a coordinated way across the city.
